Video Ad Tech Company Unruly Brings First Native Video SSP Offering to Videology Clients
Videology Clients in the UK Can Programmatically Access Unruly’s In-Feed Native Video Format Across Premium Publishers
LONDON – June 18, 2015 – Video ad tech company Unruly today announces it has partnered with Videology, one of the world’s leading video advertising technology platforms, to make Unruly’s exclusive In-Feed native placements available to Videology clients within the UK.
Integration with Unruly’s proprietary SSP UnrulyX™ allows Videology to provide its clients with direct access to premium publishers who are running the native video format. Videology users will now be able to access nearly half a billion monthly impressions via UnrulyX’s direct publisher relationships with hundreds of premium destinations, including Hearst UK and IDG portfolio publications.
As a result of the partnership, Videology clients can utilise Unruly’s proprietary Liquid Layout Engine, which automatically adapts the video ad to the design and layout of the publisher’s desktop, tablet and mobile sites in real-time. This enables cross-device, multi-screen advertising for programmatic native placements across the mobile web and desktop environments.
Native video placements will be secured programmatically through UnrulyX and appear in Unruly’s proprietary In-Feed player, which only begins to play once scrolled in-view, with no restriction on video length.
The UnrulyX integration ensures that Videology customers are ensured of a brand safe environment through both proprietary and third party measurement tools that verify both high viewability levels and human traffic.
Videology’s UK MD, Rich Astley, said: “Native video and mobile are key growth areas in the digital advertising space, so we are delighted to be able to offer our UK clients access to Unruly’s premium supply of native video placements.”
“With their video-centric outlook on digital advertising, Videology is one of the leading digital advertising companies and we are excited to launch this programmatic partnership and to bring UnrulyX inventory to its user base,” said Scott Button, Unruly CEO.
“We’ve been focused on squaring the circle of programmatic native video and providing a solution to that offers placements that only begin to play once in-view through UnrulyX.”
